Over the last two weeks I have discussed the benefits of staying at the Walt Disney World Value and Moderate Resorts. If you still aren’t sure where to stay, then read on for some information about WDW’s top of the line Deluxe Resorts!
Price: These are Disney’s top of the line Resorts, which means the price is (quite a bit) higher per room than at either the Value or Moderate Resorts. The room rates at these Resorts starts at around $260 per night, and going up to $800 or more per night (depending on the type of view and time of year), and then there are suites/villas of all sizes and types, in the $1000-$2000 plus per night range. NOTE: The pricing in this category is very subjective – each Resort’s priced a little bit differently, so you might want to check out WDW’s Official Resorts Website for more information on specific pricing for each type of room.
When I think of food at Walt Disney World, my mind hardly ever goes to Magic Kingdom except to think about the coveted Dole Whip! I tend to dream and salivate about Ohana, and the Tusker House breakfast until I tried something at the Columbia Harbour House that changed the way I viewed dining at the MK!
I didn’t eat at the Colombia Harbour House until about 4 trips ago, and I am hooked! The Columbia Harbour House is located in Liberty Square close to the Hall of Presidents and across the street from the Haunted Mansion. Before I had actually entered the Columbia Harbour House, I always thought it was probably small and crowded but I was wrong. This place is good sized in the inside with plenty of seating with an upstairs too! I have never experienced this place to be super busy, although there has always been a line! I have not had a problem finding a place to sit. I love how cool the Columbia Harbour House feels on a hot Florida day, it is really refreshing! Something else I really like about eating here is that there are a lot of outlets by the tables against the wall, and while I don’t know if we are supposed to use them I always plug my iPhone in while dining here!
Last week I talked about the WDW Value Resorts, and gave some information that hopefully helped you decide if they would work for you and your family. While the Value Resorts are great, they aren’t for everyone, and if you’re not sure the over the top decor and super family friendly atmosphere of the Value Resorts is quite your style, then read on for some information about Disney’s Moderate Resorts:
Price: Moderate means “middle of the road”, so at these Resorts, you will pay more for a room than at a Value Resort (but you also get more too!). A single room costs anywhere from $170-$300 per night (with select resorts offering suites which can cost from $600 to $1300 per night depending on the season). There are “standard”, “preferred” and “water”/”river”/”garden” view” rooms, all of which vary in price, and unfortunately a ‘water view’ can equal a pond sometimes, so you’ll want to do your research on what type of room would best suit you. The exception to the price rule here is the Fort Wilderness Cabins – which will run you around $300-$450 per night
Who doesn’t like a little romance? Whatever the stage of your relationship, it is time you learn to embrace the magic, the wonder, the romance of Disney World. There are so many opportunities for romance in the parks! From dining to attractions and everything in between, Disney has got it all! Today, I’ve come up with what I am going to call my dream Disney day. Maybe one of these days I’ll get to put it to use at what I find to be one of the most magically romantic spots in the world! Until my prince comes, a girl can dream (and dream BIG).
Start your day EARLY! Get up, get out of bed! Don’t sleep away your day. Being up early will give you some quiet time for a romantic stroll or breakfast with your loved one! You’ll avoid wasting your precious time together and in the parks! So now that we took care of that detail, let’s get started!
It all starts with a romantic breakfast…
Over the years, Chef Mickey’s has gotten a not-so-amazing reputation, mostly for the food not being great, and it also has become known as a place that’s really just for kids and families
Personally, I completely disagree with both of those statements – I happen to love the food, and as an adult I love going there and enjoying the atmosphere they have to offer.
So why should you, an adult who can pick any place in Walt Disney World to eat, choose to eat at Chef Mickey’s?
Well, there are definitely some really good reasons:
